Projects Space

March 2013 Houston Texas

George R. Brown Convention Center

I’m very proud to have been chosen to be a part of the NCECA Projects Space event.

I collaborated with fellow grad student, Elizabeth Head-Fischer from Texas Woman’s University. We where the only participants from the state of Texas and the only students selected.

Our project was titled A Walk in the Park. It focused on taking the less traveled path, seeing the beauty in the neglected parts of a park that nature has been allowed to reclaim at its own pace. Decay gives way to change and new life. Our forest environment was made from raw unfired clay. During the course of the 3 day conference our 15 by 25 foot space evolved into a unique environment.

It was an interactive event. Numerous passers by created hundreds of objects from raw clay. Making interesting creatures and plants to fill in the scene.

NCECA 2013 Houston - Collaborative Project

A Walk in the Park

Although this project was collaborative, I convey ideas of relationships and connectedness. Moments shared with family and the role memory plays when we reflect on simple events that at the time experienced seem inconsequential and fleeting. This work, a metaphor for time spent with my father, his nurturing guidance and stability.
